“I will listen to what God the Lord will say, he promises peace to his people, his saints” (Psalm 85:8).
The bombardment of competing voices that daily vie for our attention can bring great angst, anxiety, and stress. Perhaps this is why I find such meaning in this verse. In the midst of all the “noise” that each day brings, when my ears are attuned to voice of God, I find peace and rest.
I know your room, your office, your classroom is filled with noise, but listen. Listen! Listen! Shhhhhhhhh…..Did you hear that?
